Microsoft Financial analyst Charles Sizemore predicts that over time, a persistent Microsoft will come to not only thrive but dominate in the mobile computing space, because Apple has no "moats" to prevent customer attrition and its insistence at heavily controlling the ecosystem will drive customers away, while Google's offerings are too "shoddy." It's a bold prediction, but I suppose betting on Microsoft to be persistent and build on its strengths is a safe bet. But will persistence and flexibility be enough?

Yes. The same Microsoft that fights against web-standards (WebGL in IE10 anyone? ALL other browsers support WebGL). The same Microsoft that took over ISO and pushed there own standard file-formats. That's the Microsoft we are talking about.
